After sixty years of marriage and five daughters, Lynn “Lovey” White knows that all of us, from time to time, need to use our little white lies. Her granddaughter, Annabelle, on the other hand, is as truthful as they come. She always does the right thing… that is, until she dumps her hedge fund manager fiancé and marries a musician she has known for three days. But when Annabelle’s world starts to collapse around her, she discovers that nothing about her picture-perfect family is as it seems. Kristy Woodson Harvey’s returns with Lies and Other Acts of Love, an intriguing look at what it really means to tell the truth. Kristy blogs at Design Chic about how creating a beautiful home can be the catalyst for creating a beautiful life, and her writing has appeared in numerous publications and websites.

Smarter, Faster, Better: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg draws on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics—as well as the experiences of CEOS, educational reformers, four-star generals, FBI agents, airplane pilots, and Broadway songwriters to explain that the most productive people and organizations don’t just act differently. They view the world, and their choices, in profoundly different ways. Charles is a Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative reporter for The New York Times and winner of the National Academies of Sciences, National Journalism, and George Polk awards.
